This fountain is beautiful and you can see it in your way to the little mermaid or while walking to the kastellet and the park.
Although we were not looking for the Gefion Fountain (Gefiovsprngvandet) we stopped for pictures on our way from the Little Mermaid working our way back to Central.

A beautiful fountain on the harbor front. The sculpture looks magnificent. One can take nice snaps with the church in the background. From here one can walk to the little mermaid!
By visiting this very nice fountain you can also visit the Mermaid, a very nice Anglican church next door and opposite a huge fortress with a lovely windmill inside. All in all a very nice spot to visit.

You won't need to spend much time there, so I recommend it for a pleasant walk, visit churchill park, the fount, wharf and the Little Mermaid. You can take nice pictures there, using the church or the sea as background.
